We all fall off the wagon from time to time but what matters is what we do when we realize it! Do we jump back on or do we let our old habits creep back in???? I'm jumping back on!!!!

Over & over I have struggled with what the scale has said or hasn't said. But have made peace with it and know that it is JUST A NUMBER! I'm not a number, I am a strong, lean, healthy and powerful person! I don't need to know what the scale says -- that does not define how I feel (or how you should feel)! Look at the other factors -- how do your clothes fit, how do you feel, how do your rings fit?

It has taken me a while to come to peace with my body and what I have accomplished! YOU TOO CAN GET TO THAT POINT - JUST KEEP PUSHING ON STRONG! Understand that you will have setbacks, but just get back on the wagon and take it one day at a time!!!!

Don't let your healthy eating or exercising take a back seat and don't take it for granted! That is how we lose control & go back to our old habits!!
I have taken my passion for a healthy lifestyle to help myself, my family, and now to others. I have completed my certification in Personal Training and Fitness Nutrition. And now I have started my own business - Evolution Fitness - to help others achieve their nutritional and fitness goals. I want to help people become healthier, stronger & to become the person they truly want to be!

No matter what your story is or what your motivation is, if you truly want it... you can have it!

I started my weight loss journey December 16, 2006 by walking into Weight Watchers door. I did it half-heartedly. But I walked out of there knowing I was going to do it this time. I did get my first surprise that day walking into WW, I thought I weighed 165 but to my surprise I only weighed 160.8!

I hit my goal weight of 135 in August of 2007 and then made Lifetime with Weight Watchers 9/29/07. I joined SP in March of 2007 and what changes I have made with SP. This is such a great site and there are a ton of knowledgeable people on here! I'm so glad I was turned onto this site!!!

I am working on eating clean and getting the processed foods out of my body. It is interesting to see how much my belly has gone down from the lack of bloating! That is GREAT!
